I am new to this site. I just have a question about my pattern - I am having a hard time reading it.
For the border of my shawl, the pattern says:
Row 1 - K1 YO (K2tog, YO) across to 1st marker, ending with (k1, YO), SM, K1, SM, YO, K1, YO (then SSK, YO) across remainder of row, ending with K1.
I don’t understand the brackets. do I K1, YO THEN K2tog, YO or do I just K2tog, YO?
why do they put brackets?
